The report “Progress on competitiveness of clean energy technologies” has been published by the European Commission assessing the clean energy ecosystem in the European Union (EU), from research and innovation to deployment. The report assesses progress based on key competitiveness indicators. It shows that while the EU remains at the forefront of clean energy research, further efforts are needed to increase research and innovation (R&I) investments and to bridge the gap between innovation and market.
The assessment of the competitiveness of the EU clean energy system is done in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2018/1999, as part of the State of the Energy Union report. The document also proposes a set of widely accepted indicators capturing the entire energy system (generation, transmission and consumption) and analysed at three levels (technology, value chain, and global market).
